I highly recommend Riad Mazaya. Not only is it very well presented, clean, quiet, comforting and welcoming with nicely decorated rooms, but the owner Frederique is very helpful and knowledgeable about all things tourist-Marrakech and able to advise/book on restaurants, tours and the likely prices for shopping items in the souks. The breakfast is fantastic, the rooftop terrace is the perfect place to take it, and the service great. I would also recommend getting some dinner here - order in the morning for the evening and you can have food that is the equal of a restaurant but at a better price and in the convenience and privacy of where you are staying. It is like having your own private restaurant.
As for the location, this Riad is only 10 minutes walk from the main square Jnamm El Fna (I timed this), and closer still to some of the other attractions such as the two palaces and the Dar Si Said museum. It's also not far from one of the Medina's small car parking areas, which is convenient if you book a tour or airport transfers.
I stayed here for a week and I can't imagine a better place to say in Marrakech.
